in fact, right now in these areas these green areas we have flash flood warnings posted until 11:45 this evening. those may be extended later on tonight and into tomorrow morning. we have the high clouds out there. a few spotty showers shopping up. a few sprinkles out there. i think we could have a little bit more activity on the radar for tomorrow. especially to the south of the region. take a look at these current temperatures once again. this is not happened too much. but look at all these 70s out there. at the 10:00 hour, concord 79. san jose 74 and oakland checking in 74 degrees. as far as the temperature time line in san jose waking up at 7:00. 70degrees. back up into the mid- to upper 80s by 2:00 and 3:00 tomorrow afternoon. so here it is. here we go with the left over moisture from what was once hurricane dolore s and all weekend long we've been tracking the moisture.
with that no major changes for tomorrow. definitely scattered high clouds. still very humid out there and the chance of isolated thunderstorms. it'll be warm to hot once again with those readings in the 80s and 90s. not too generous with rainfall here in the bay area but all that miceture in place. the instability in -- the moisture in place. the instability will stay in place. still lingering clouds out there. the main focus out toward the sierra and down toward southern california. forecast highs we really warmed up today. take a look at the numbers for tomorrow. santa rosa 90 degrees. oakland 82 degrees. livermore 90s. san jose 89 showing up. sunny vale in the upper 80s. in san francisco, starting off the day very warm. it'll feel strange on your way to walk tomorrow. those readings in the upper 70s with a daytime high of 80.
big question is when will the humid conditions go away. i think for monday and tuesday they'll stick around and gradually cool things off. slight chance of a shower tomorrow and slight chance into tuesday and warming up for tuesday. tomorrow expect everything out there. sun, clouds an isolated thunderstorms, warm, humid. you can't go wrong. no snow though. >> no snow. who hasn 't dreamed of soaring through the air. and they take me along for a ride.
